Laced with Grace....Take a snapshot

Today I have shared a devotion over at Laced with Grace entitled “Take a snapshot”.

When you find yourself walking through the valley, don’t forget what it was like on the mountain top. 

When it was all going good – the family was happy, everyone was healthy and everyone was getting along – when the finances were at its best – when your car was running just fine – when all the bills got paid without any struggle – when your health was not giving you any problems – when it wasn’t a sacrifice to pay your tithes - when you and your spouse were back into the honeymoon stage all over again – when everything was just going great and you had everything to smile about – when your faith and hope were at their all time high….then all of a sudden you find yourself walking in darkness wondering what in the world happened to all that faith you had and where on earth did your hope run off to?

It’s easy to have faith in God when everything is going hunky-dory.  I think we can all agree with that!  It’s not hard at all to say everything is going to be okay when you feel like everything is going to be okay.  When you begin to leave the season of inspiration and walk into difficult circumstances, your feelings begin to change.  You begin to feel scared, feel worried, and feel the darkness surrounding you; and everything you have learned and knew before seems to fade into the distance like it never existed and all you know is that you feel like your situation is completely hopeless…...

  1. Thank you for visiting me today and for your prayers. I was so raw when I wrote that post this morning. I've decided to "hide" it for now.

    I'm heading over to finish reading your post.

    BTW -- I'm your newest follower.


  2. Oh I needed this today. I am a late reader of this devo...but it was needed TODAY. Thank you for following His heart in your writing! What a blessing!
